    Model acquired from the builder in 2017, he originally scratch built it in the 1960's. It performs quite nicely and is steered with independent paddle drive as well as rudder. Uses a 6volt sla battery.

    You are completely right Len, they are absolutely different types of ships, one type (flat hulls, raft type) made only for rivers and lakes, with little or no wave motion, shallow drafts, the other type (displacement hull) also made for seas and oceans.

    Hello Colin.
    I had seen this RC model some time ago but I no longer remembered that you also had a boat with paddle wheels.
    Recently there has been talk about these models and their lack of governability.
    In your case, however, there should be no problems because the hull is not flat but is a classic hull.
    It can steer both with the rudder and with the use of the wheels that turn differently from each other, even without the rudder. Did I get it right?
